Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has admitted to Yahoo Sport that the players have lost confidence due to the poor results at Wembley over the past year.
Before the start of the current Premier League season, the London club had just one win in nine games at the stadium, a theme which has since continued in the first two matches of the new campaign.
Tottenham lost their first game to arch rivals Chelsea and conceded a late equaliser against Burnley.
"Wembley is a different place and it demands more effort in your mind, in your body, and then we need to try to find the right feeling, find confidence so that step by step it will arrive. We need to make sure that kind of scenario will not happen again", said Lloris referring to the result against Burnley.
“I think it could have happened at White Hart Lane too. From the beginning when you don’t win your two home games, you start to lose a bit of confidence, and you can feel the same in the crowd.
"You can feel the opponent building confidence and it’s not easy – especially after a season like last one.
“We were unbeaten [at home], we could have played eyes closed. We were fantastic. But the most important thing is to keep our belief, keep working hard, and it will happen."
The Wembley 'curse', as ridiculous as it sounds on paper, seems to have drained the confidence out of the London outfit. Tottenham boasted the best home record in the League last season, winning 17 of their 19 games at White Hart Lane.
To put things into perspective, Mauricio Pochettino's men would need to win every game from this point to match their record at the Lane.
Tottenham have undoubtedly been one of the most consistent teams in the League in the past couple of seasons, and although 'pundits' have credited the Manchester clubs and Chelsea as title favourites, the North London side are undoubtedly one of the early contenders despite their recent disappointment.
